CVS Pharmacy 33155emergency room prescription refused


I had to go to the emergency room at West Kendall Baptist Emergency Department where I was taken by Miami-Dade County
EMT personnel with a badly locked knee. The attending physician prescribed Percocet 5mg/325mg every 6 hours, (10).
The prescription was written by Anay Castro, DEA # [protected].
The prescription was refused by the CVS pharmacist! When I asked why he stated something about there being a problem with the prescribing physician and said RUDELY that he could not provide any further information.
My husband complained to the store manager who said something about drug interactioins and it was for my protection BUT the assistant pharmacist told us candidly, until she was told to hush by the rude pharmacist who threw a prescription at her that too many drug abusers trying to buy drugs such as percocet at that particular store...So rather than call the hospital to verify the prescription we were profiled and refused the meds.
We bought the Ibuprofen also on the doctor's prescription and went across the street to Walgreen's Pharmacy where the prescription for Percocet was filled with no issues, no rudeness, and a smile.
I'll transfer my monthly prescriptions on Monday and make sure to inform family and friends why I will no longer be a CVS customer

    If you have never filled prescriptions there AND/OR never filled a narcotic, no pharmacy will fill it. Take it to the hospital pharmacy and they will fill it.

    If there is an issue with the attending's DEA # then he should not be writing narocos and no pharmacy, even the hospital, with fill it. Thanks to the DEA cracking down on pharmacy shoppers, drug pushers and takers, and criminal physicians and pharmacies, this is the result.

    No pharmacist will risk his license and jail time. This situation has been on the news multiple times in the last several years, and 3 years ago many pharmacists with CVS and other pharmacies were arrested for just that.
